Attention: RC-CAM.com will be closing down August 2021.

The RC-Cam.com forum was the very first online community dedicated to the advancement of wireless video cameras on radio controlled (R/C) models. This is now called "FPV" (First Person View). We are proud of the contributions that our members have made to the FPV hobby.

We've seen significant changes over the last twenty years. Initially there were a lot of eager R/C hobbyist that built their own video systems. Allowing these creative individuals to share their work was the purpose of this site. Now the FPV market is flooded with low cost systems; Sadly DiY FPV video projects are now rarely discussed.

RC-CAM.com (main site and forum) will be closing down August 2021. This is being announced now (March 2021) so that everyone has time to download any information that is important to them. After the site is shutdown the information will no longer be available here.

We appreciate every member's involvement with advancing the FPV hobby. It is indeed sad to say goodbye to all our online friends. Be safe and stay healthy.

I recently installed a 10mw transmitter and CMOS micro camera on a rubber-band powered plane of mine (the system ended up being a little heavy which, for now, is beside the point) and I am encountering some difficulty with the stability of the video. For some reason, I can't seem to get a static/interference free image for more than a second or two at a time.

I have attached a jpeg which shows the layout of the system (incidentally the plane ended up being extremely tail heavy). The battery I used is 3.7 volt Li-ion with around 200 mah current. The battery is powering both the transmitter and the camera simultaneously. Could this be the culprit?

Also, a video sample can be viewed at: http://www.williamwhited.com/FPVhelp.html

I thank you so much for your time and willingness to help!

The video looks normal to me. You will always get breaks in the picture when walking about indoors.

Are you sure it's powered by 1 3.7v cell ? seems a bit low to me. Some transmitters are 3.3v but I don't know of any 3.3v cameras.
